Be aware there is a charge for their service, however information will be provided to all arrests made in the State of Florida, not just the City of Niceville. For criminal history information in another state, we suggest you use an internet search engine of your choice and enter '(state) criminal history records'.

Fingerprint cards are provided by the employer or licensing agency that is requiring you to have them done. The Niceville Police Department does not provide applicant cards. All personal information should be filled out completely in black ink on the front of the fingerprint card prior to coming to the police department. There is a $5 per card charge for this service, and should be in correct change, since monies are turned in on a regular basis, and change is not always available. Government issued photo identification is also required (Military Identification, State Driver's License, Etc.)
This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For more information, contact us at 850-279-6436.
